Dallas Market

This past Friday, the design studio I work for took all of the designers, assistant designers, and support staff to the Total Home & Gift Market in Dallas.  I was totally pumped because this was my first trip to a residential market (I’ve been to NeoCon in Chicago), and my first time to the Dallas Market Center.

.

We flew up for the day, so we had a lot of ground to cover in 11 hours.  I’m talking 15 floors.

But we made a list of all the must stop shops… and hit up a few of the clothing and jewelry floors as well.

My pictures might be somewhat random, but here are some of the really cool things I saw:

.

A spin on the classic cafe chair, available in a plethora of funky colors.

.

I love anything made from nature.  A great (& sustainable!) choice for an accent table.

.

Another obsession: anything Moroccan inspired. LOVE!!!

.

Great bedding concepts and fabrics.

.

Umm yes please.  You don’t have to ask me twice!  By the way, I was totally a fan of all the free food and drink being thrown at me all day.

.

Crazy about the red interior of this cabinet!

.

These wire pendents were awesome.

.

Great line of throws – fun patterns and so unbelievably softttttt.

.

Lovely linen striped drapes.

.

But it wasn’t all glamorous.  Like these stuffed REAL raccoons (think taxidermy on crack). I guess someone felt the need to have them go on a canoe expedition?? WHO DOES THAT???

.

One of my favorite things about interior design is the unexpected.  Red bottle cap mirror or console could totally blow minds in the right space.

.

Beautiful accessories.

.

More accessories, supercharged this time!

.

This was such a great display wall idea:  fabric covered panels put together in a quilted pattern.

.

Great option for plastic tableware.  Fun prints at a great price.

Well I think this is all enough for now! I’m sure your brain is on information overload, so tomorrow I will post pictures from my favorite showroom of the trip and the great cheap jewelry I bought.  XOXO.
